I baked this in 2 8x4 pans, and the baking time was only 40 minutes. We love the holiday fruit and eggnog taste. Great bread!

This turned out wonderful- I could tell it's a good cake batter by how smooth it was once mixed. I used golden raisins, currants, and dried cranberries. The texure of the cake is perfect: not crumbly around the fruit, moist without being terribly dense.

Delicious! I baked it for only 60 minutes, and should have taken it out earlier still. I used full fat, full flavor egg nog, and switched out chunks of a dried fruit bar for the candied fruit, which I did not have on hand. The dough is springy and moist, and I thought it was very flavorful. My hubby and I ate half the loaf for breakfast, it was so good!
